micromark utility to splice and push with giant arrays.


What is this?

This package exposes an algorithm to splice for giant arrays, which V8 bugs out on.

When should I use this?

This package might be useful when you are making your own micromark extensions.


This package is ESM only. In Node.js (version 16+), install with npm:

npm install micromark-util-chunked

In Deno with esm.sh:

import {push, splice} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-util-chunked@1'

In browsers with esm.sh:

<script type="module">
  import {push, splice} from 'https://esm.sh/micromark-util-chunked@1?bundle'


import {push, splice} from 'micromark-util-chunked'

// …

nextEvents = push(nextEvents, [
  ['enter', events[open][1], context],
  ['exit', events[open][1], context]

// …

splice(events, open - 1, index - open + 3, nextEvents)

// …


This module exports the identifiers push and splice. There is no default export.

push(list, items)

Append items (an array) at the end of list (another array). When list was empty, returns items instead.

This prevents a potentially expensive operation when list is empty, and adds items in batches to prevent V8 from hanging.


Either list or items (Array<unknown>).

splice(list, start, remove, items)

Like Array#splice, but smarter for giant arrays.

Array#splice takes all items to be inserted as individual argument which causes a stack overflow in V8 when trying to insert 100k items for instance.

Otherwise, this does not return the removed items, and takes items as an array instead of rest parameters.


Nothing (undefined).


This package is fully typed with TypeScript. It exports no additional types.


Projects maintained by the unified collective are compatible with maintained versions of Node.js.

When we cut a new major release, we drop support for unmaintained versions of Node. This means we try to keep the current release line, micromark-util-chunked@^2, compatible with Node.js 16. This package works with micromark@^3.
